Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
On May 10, 2018, you submitted a FOIA request to the Cook County Clerk requesting "the source code for the system or systems used to calculate tax extensions."
The Clerk does not have source code that was written by the Bureau of Technology to perform tasks required by the Clerk in calculating tax rates. Any such code is held by the County's Bureau of Technology. Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act we are unable to produce responsive documents to your request.
After previous emails seeking this information, we reached out to the Bureau but had not received a definitive response.
